Our Site Is Different

Our site is different. We go about life doing things in ways that you don't learn about at Harvard. The following examples of recent happenings at Highland Hill Farm. Our site security is important to us. Both internet and at our main nursery. When my 84 year old father said he wanted to help I had to let him help. So since people had been coming to the nursery fields late at night and dumping trash, he said he would sit in our lot and catch someone. After a few nights he called me at 4 am. There was a truck. So I called 911 and went over in my , well you know, and took my shot gun I was ready for bear. Turns out it was the trash truck. Sometimes site security works and sometimes it does not. I think my father wants to get lucky. The other month I was called by the police and told that there was someone stuck in one of our fields. It was a late Sat. night. I went out to look for the car as the police told me that a tow truck had been called and the driver refused to enter my property without the police because he suspected foul play. After searching I found two girls and a guy, I was never that lucky, stuck in the mud of one of our fields where we had just dug some arborvitae. Boy did the fire company luck out when I refused to allow them to tow out the car until they made a "Donation" to the Plumstead Fire Company. I figured $2500 was reasonable. They also agreed. This is a copy of my most recent email newsletter. This was an overwhelming success. *********************************************************** January 2006 The Early Bird Gets the Worm---Don't Delay Free Tree Day Jan. 28th is a Free Higan Weeping Cherry Tree Day Greetings!
